Last Rebel, The Ashton, Gardner and Dyke with Jon Lord Capitol SW-827, 1970
Last Rebel, The album cover

You wouldn't buy this from the cover if you saw it in a record store. Another dull Western soundtrack, right? Wrong. Dead wrong. Jon Lord was the keyboard player with Deep Purple, and is renowned as one of the best Hammond organists to come out of the UK. While Deep Purple played rock, this album features some unbelievable way-out funk! Really odd prog-influenced, wah guitar horns and massive breaks. Look out for the killer old-school funk cut 'Hanging', and the wicked breaks of The Last Rebel. Definitely an oddball LP - there's a heavy dose of strangeness lurking in the arrangements - but a worthy addition to a funk soundtrack collection, and a producer's dream. I'm still in shock after listening to it.

Overall Rating: 4
